Providing effective legal counsel and promoting equitable justice for the City of Saint Paul.
As the second-largest municipal law office in Minnesota, the Saint Paul City Attorney’s Office dedicates its time to representing and defending the city and its employees, departments, boards, and committees.
Our Criminal Division prosecutes misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor-level crimes; our Civil Division provides sound legal advice and representation to city officials, departments, boards, and commissions; and our Civil Litigation Division represents the city in civil lawsuits in state, federal, and appellate courts.
Unfortunately, our office cannot provide legal counsel to our residents. To learn about legal resources that are available to you, we welcome you to explore our community legal resources page.
The Saint Paul City Attorney’s Office is led by our City Attorney, Lyndsey Olson.
